Like redrose said VERY dangerous.....
Usually, the dosages decreases with time until you are off it completely...I have never heard of a rheumy just stopping it cut and dry like that.
Especially because pred puts ur adrenal glands at rest....so coming off of it suddenly, the glands arent aware of it..and do not jump back into action.
A decreased dosage...makes the body aware of a lower amount of cortisol and thus hints the body(adrenal gland) to start to produce some cortisol until the dosage is so low, the body is producing all the cortisol its need and you can stop the pred altogether
But if ur Rheumy is ok with it. She is the professional not me.
